Logitech Unveils Black Edition of Wireless Guitar Controller for PLAYSTATION 3
Wireless Guitar Controller for Guitar Hero to be Available in Australia
SYDNEY May 26, 2009 — Logitech Australia today announced the Logitech® Wireless Guitar Controller for PLAYSTATION®3 and PlayStation®2 computer entertainment systems. Featuring authentic materials – including a wood neck and body, a rosewood fingerboard and metal frets – the Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller is for gamers who truly want to play like a rock star.
“Logitech’s new guitar controller delivers the same unparalleled Guitar Hero experience to an even broader group of gamers and at a great value,” said Nick Angelucci, Logitech Austalia’s Product and Marketing Manager. “Everything about the Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller is premium – from the authentic wood material and flawless black finish, to the noise-dampening design of the strum bar and buttons, to the authentic accents provided by the metal frets.”
The Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller offers a one-piece contoured wood body preferred by many of the world’s leading rock guitarists. For reduced button noise, Logitech uses rubber dome technology on the fret board controls, the same material used in its award-winning keyboards. The guitar controller also incorporates a touch-sensitive slider, located on the neck of the guitar controller so you can rack up the points.
So you’ll be free to go where the music moves you, the Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller lets you jam at a range of up to 10 metres from the console and offers hundreds of hours of battery life. The Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller will be available in a pristine black finish complemented with a glossy black pick guard. The Guitar Controller is licensed by Activision Publishing, Inc. for the award-winning Guitar Hero® franchise.
